All of August. IRL + Online.
The Blue Room Theatre is thrilled to present Winter Nights 2020, a largely remote festival that embraces the opportunities and rises to the challenge of our physically distant reality.
This festival encompasses the essence of Winter Nights’ past by fostering dialogue, celebrating innovation and the creative process, supporting local artists to redefine their performance-making practice in the wake of Covid-19.
With theatres closed and conditions placed upon collaboration and community, Covid-19 has compromised the very premise upon which we create and consume performance. It’s time to traverse boundaries and transform. Artists have been provoked to reconsider how they can play with the high stakes of a live show and entertain interaction with audiences in this whole new world. With live broadcasted conversations accompanied by an all new podcast along with a smorgasbord of creative developments, West Australian artists are doing just that.
This Winter Nights there are a lot of new works in the pipeline. Not all projects will be unveiled to the public this August, however audiences can tune in, rock up and support a taster of tantalising conversations and innovating performance showings, trials and prototypes as artists dedicate themselves to redefining our future.
